With the world's most badly named homage brand today.
You know, I have began to appreciate that Seiko uses 20mm lug size for the MM300. A lot of people complained about this but I think 22mm lug will make the watch unbalance.

I think it's perfectly fine, having it as 22mm would change the look of the watch significantly, plus the bracelet is really quite chunky even on this homage, so 2mm more would be even more weight!

If I'm not wrong, this is the one where some guy left his Batman in shower cubicle in gym and it got stolen. Nice to see a happy ending here but he was lucky the alleged thief quite silly. Just a gentle reminder not to leave your belongings lying around. Low crime doesn't mean no crime.

Ohhhhh, no wonder the reaction haha! Yes I was referring to getting just the bracelet, since the SPB053 comes with the rubber strap de

Hmm so I shouldn't expect anything lower than around that pricing ah...

Yes gaoxing it's abit ex for me to stomach. Shall sit on the idea awhile longer.

Thank you both!
